Beautiful Day


I love U2. I've been listening to them since junior high when the album "Boy" came out (tells you how old I am!!).

As a writer, I love words. And U2 has some of the most meaningful lyrics of any rock band around. I'm listening to "Beautiful Day" as I write this post and it seems totally appropriate for this day in history.

No matter who you voted for or what you believe, today is the start of something new. And here in southern California, the sun is shining, I feel hopeful, and it is, indeed, a beautiful day.

That would have been a great Tune for Tuesday today! I love that song, I have it on my ipod. I bought so many U2 cassettes as a high schooler!

I love this song, too, and was actually saying to my husband when U2 played at the concert, that they should have played THAT song!!!!!

You're right Sherrie, yesterday was the most beautiful day in a long, long time.

And as for U2, they're my all time favorite band. (Which makes me think that could be a good Question Of The Day. Thanks for the inspiration!)

Yes, it's a great day and a whole, new and fresh beginning. Go Obama!
